Queens Head is a long stretch of beach divided by a fantastic rock formation. The rock formation is a sort of abstracted headland, surrounded by crystalline waters and low-lying bushland. Queens Head is quite secluded and can only be accessed by 4WD South-West of Point Plomer or a 14-kilometre 4WD beach drive from the Port Macquarie North Shore ferry at low tide.


Be very careful as strong rips, rocks and often high waves dominate these two beaches. Stay in the centre on the bar, if attached, and away from the side rips and rocks. This beach is not patrolled.


Potential for beach breaks when conditions are suitable.


A popular area to fish luderick and blackfish with deep gutters and holes abound, with the rocks between the beaches called Never Fail. The southern Queens Head has a number of difficult spots including Sloppy Rock and The Island. Care is needed when walking on the steeply sloping rocks.
